  • Five Health Systems Picking Dandelion Health To Advance Clinical AI

    Clinical Research News | If artificial intelligence (AI) is to be as insightful as possible in advancing human health, it is not enough to have a patchwork of out-of-context data from which to draw conclusions. That is unfortunately the current situation and at the cost of lost opportunities to better treat patients, identify early biomarkers of disease, and recognize the right endpoints in clinical trials—not to mention eradicating existing biases against marginalized groups of people.

  • Future Looks Bright For Decentralized Clinical Trials

    Clinical Research News | Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) today are both more fit-for-purpose and business-as-usual than uncertain and unavoidable, as was the case during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the key challenges with DCTs are keeping sites and patients engaged, dealing with the near-constant inflow of data from digital platforms and wearable devices, and quantifying the value of various decentralized study components.
